407: Purpose Filter with Dr. Kathy Zhang
Growing up as a lover of science, Dr. Kathy Zhang found herself on the road to medical school as a young adult. Starting her career as a hospitalist for four years, she quickly realized that the expedited culture of the patient experience was not how she envisioned serving her patients as a young girl.
While deep in the throws of burnout as a hospitalist, Kathy found her way into a fellowship that was more in line with her calling and how she wanted to serve her patients. What was initially a quick way out turned into a transition away from her burnout.
She now splits her time between inpatient care and her own coaching and podcast business, but she got there through therapy and coaching. Having experienced the change that physicians can gain through coaching, she had the overwhelming desire to share it with everyone she could. Her passion lies in helping other physicians find their way back to the driver’s seat of their own lives and how to navigate their struggles in a way that feels true to them.
Using some amazing tools such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping, hypnosis, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), we can peel back the layers of conditioning that we’ve been stuck in for years to get back to the light in our lives. These modalities help us realize that we’re not broken, and there is a way out of the thought patterns that keep us rooted in burnout.
By defining your own worth and providing yourself with the self-care you deserve, you can show up as the physician that you have always wanted to be while enforcing the boundaries that are necessary to keep you healthy.
Tune in to this episode to hear more about Kathy’s journey and how she’s helping physicians everywhere navigate their path out of burnout.
“When we are exhibiting the same symptoms that we are treating our patients for, maybe it’s time to take a step back.” Dr. Kathy Zhang
